US Supreme Court to consider Trump's travel ban

US Supreme Court to consider Trump's travel ban

The policy bars or limits entry by people from Iran, Syria, Somalia, Libya and Yemen.

The challengers, led by the state of Hawaii, have argued the policy was motivated by Trump's enmity toward Muslims and that it violates federal immigration law and the U.S. Constitution's prohibition on the government favoring one religion over another.

Justice Elena Kagan asked Francisco how thoroughly the court could review a ban on migration from Israel enacted by an openly anti-Semitic president, while Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wondered why a ten-year-old with cerebral palsy from a sanctioned country was denied a visa, despite exceptions proscribed for immigrants seeking medical care.

Fellow conservative Roberts questioned whether the president could be restricted from taking action on foreign policy emergencies, such as the civil war in Syria, if he is prevented from targeting specific countries.

In Vanguard's report it was noted that The ban was reissued twice, each time with adjustments aiming to get around such rulings.

The showdown, after the Supreme Court took the unprecedented step of granting argument time to China's Ministry of Commerce, comes as the two countries threaten to slap tariffs on each other.

The case is Trump v. Hawaii, 17-965.




Ultimately, the Supreme Court will decide. Kennedy gave the example of a local mayor who makes discriminatory statements and then two days after taking office acts on them. "Do you say Mandel puts an end to judicial review of that set of facts?"

The challengers, backed by a diverse array of supporting legal briefs, have said that Trump is flouting immigration law by trying to keep more than 150 million people, the vast majority of them Muslim, from entering the country.

"After multiple agency heads conducted a comprehensive, worldwide review of foreign governments' information-sharing practices and other risk factors, President Trump determined this travel order is critical to protecting the American people", Sessions said. But the Trump administration appealed to the Supreme Court, which allowed the policy to go into effect in October ahead of the hearing. Chad was on the list announced in September, but Trump removed it on April 10.

It also included North Korea and certain officials from Venezuela.

She wryly emphasized Francisco should imagine an "out-of-the-box president", drawing laughter from the audience in the courtroom, which included two US senators, famed playwright Lin Manuel Miranda, and Karen Korematsu, the daughter of a Japanese-American whose challenge to President Franklin Roosevelt's internment policy reached the Supreme Court in 1944. But the Justice Department says US courts have broad latitude to consider various sources when interpreting foreign law and don't necessarily have to accept the foreign government's view. In the meantime, travelers in a wide range of visa categories must prove their connection to a USA organization or individual in order to avoid the ban.

March 15: Federal District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii issues a nationwide halt to the revised travel ban on immigrants and refugees. "It hurts me because it is singling out and demeaning Muslims due to their faith".
